What do I need to connect two tvs and two Xbox 360s in the same room?

    To save having to drill a hole in the ceiling, we're going to put the two tv's together in the same or adjacent rooms with the two consoles.
    I know how to connect the ethernet cable (it's only for two player at the moment), but it's just the tv connection I'm unsure about.

    Will a single splitter and two coaxial flyleads be enough, one running to either tv?

    No acronyms if you would!
    Thanks

    Can you not connect each 360 to each TV via the included cables?

    I'm confused on what you want to do. If you've got two TV's and two 360's, surely you just connect each 360 to a TV and then join the 360's with ethernet. Why are you trying to split a TV signal?

    If you're talking about splitting a coaxial lead are you referring to splitting the analogue aerial input (for analogue tv reception) so that it reaches both TVs? :confused:

    yep I also ponder the use of a splitter. All you need to do is connect your x360's to each tv and then ethernet cable between the 360's, multiplay enabled!

    To split your aeriel so both tv's can pick up normal tv, I am sure what you have suggested will work fine, why you would want to watch tv is beyond me tho :p
